Tonight, City Winery Chicago is hosting an all-Latino showcase headlined by artist Sandra Antongiorgi who will be joined by ESSO Afrojam Funkbeat, Pecados de Maria and DJ FLX. The event will double as fundraiser with drink proceeds by City Winery benefiting Puerto Rico’s farming community.
The multi-dimensional artist will showcase her music—an expression of World, Latin and
Neo-Soul—on January 18 at City Winery, 1200 W. Randolph. In addition to performing across
the country, Sandra recently opened and performed with gifted jazz, blues and soul singer
Lizz Wright, and has opened for Wynonna Judd at the House of Blues.
“I’m inspired by the good in humanity, by what moves us to work together to make meaningful change,” said Sandra. “Partnering with City Winery is an exciting way to unite people around an important cause while sharing my passion for music with fans and our great city.”
“The City Winery family is committed to sending over 100 team members to Puerto Rico to help the farming community following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria; this event is another way for us to support local talent and fundraise for this effort,” said Dan Conroe, City Winery Chicago Marketing Director. “In addition to being a talented visual artist, Sandra is sharing her musical talent with our guests. We hope everyone will come out to enjoy an amazing time and show support.”
